|There’s only one Diego Maradona. Is this the image of a soccer coach or manager who will lead your team to a World Cup title in South Africa? However, with football players Messi, Tevez, Mascherano, and Aguero it really might not matter all that much who runs the team, right.|
Diego Maradona is known to enjoy a cigar or two, and I’m sure they’re Cubans he’s smoking. After all, his friend Fidel Castro would only have him smoke the best. But Maradona created an early wake up call to Chelsea players just before their match with Manchester United a while back, when his smoking habit set off the fire alarms. But Maradona has even smoked a cigar while playing soccer – it improves his touch he said.
“Maradona had been staying on the 14th floor of the hotel. Today mystery surrounded the alarm which forced Chelsea stars John Terry, Joe Cole and Frank Lampard to stand for 40 minutes in the freezing temperatures. An eyewitness told The Sun: “I saw most of Chelsea outside shivering. It wasn’t the best preparation for a vital game.
Officially a spokesman for Greater Manchester Fire Service said that the alarm had been due to a fault with the system. But a fireman at the scene told The Sun that the alarm had been activated because Maradona, 48, and his entourage had been smoking cigars in their rooms.”
What will always be true though is Maradona will go down in soccer history as the greatest of all-time.
